Based on BRCGS Food issue 9, this course is designed to equip Managers and Supervisors with fundamental knowledge of the requirements in order to facilitate change in behaviour in the manufacturing environment.  Managers and Supervisors become food safety coaches to lead by example and demonstrate best practices to their teams.  For them to do this effectively, they require an understanding of the reasons behind the rules to obtain a bigger picture of the meaning of the requirements.

This course starts with a brief introduction of pre-requisite programmes (PRPs).  It further explores the Codex principles underpinning HACCP in a simplified manner.  An effective food safety and quality management system is also supported by various system elements which are also covered in this course.
